Thanks to my sister Michelle McIlroy for designing the logo!


Ever since I was a child, I have been very interested in nature and the environment. I have a B.S. degree in wildlife biology, and have worked as a zookeeper, wildlife biologist, and ecologist. I am conducting a brief survey of world leaders, government officials, religious leaders, corporate CEOs, environmental groups, wildlife experts, and others regarding nature and the environment. I am also very interested in religious views, customs, and beliefs from around the world, and the interactions between religion, culture, society, and the environment. This is something I am doing out of personal interest, and is not connected to any group or organization. I have been working on this project since the summer of 2006, and hope to eventually turn it into a book and/or documentary. I am hoping to make this into a global project, with responses from all segments of society. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or comments. If you have not already done so, I hope that you will consider taking part in my project, and please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested! Thanks for stopping by!

1. What interaction with an animal and/or nature in your life has had the biggest impact on you?

The impact it had in me I wash swimming in a local stream long time a go, totally naked and then a snake came swimming towards me, head high, men, I jumped out of water and ran away naked, I was so scared, since then I never went swimming in our local stream up to date I don’t know how to swim, just jumping up and down in water and not far from the river bank.

2. Did you have a favorite place in the great outdoors during your childhood?

In my childhood, I liked going to see horse racing in Race course, Nairobi

Now? I like going out to see divers in our local springs (Chania Falls , Fourteen falls)

3. As a former zookeeper, I would love to know what your favorite animal is and why?

Cow, because I love drinking milk, if I had means I could like having milk besides my bed, warm fresh milk and sour milk very sweet, not forgetting beef meat commonly known as nyama choma here in Kenya with Gachumbari (papper, tomatoes onions, avocado paste good for nyama choma)

4. What do you think is the greatest environmental challenge facing us now, and what do you think will be the greatest challenge in the future?

Forest eradication (deforestation), the world and earth as lost it’s natural canopy due to tree cutting, causing erosion, productivity as reduced due to erosion and soil is not fertile, forest used to be water catchments, attracts rain. The greatest challenge in future is starvation, disease and death, due to drought, erosion.

5. If you could give one piece of advice regarding the environment and our natural resources, what would it be?

Environment is life preserve it, and our natural resources is our wealth, let as take care of them.
